paleo meal plan to lose weight

The Paleo Diet has become very popular over the last several years. For some the attraction is the potential for weight loss, for others it’s the return to a more basic diet that avoids processed foods.


“Paleo” is short for Paleolithic, the period in Earth’s history dating from 2.6 million years ago to 10,000 BCE—the Stone Age. The theory behind the Paleo (or “caveman”) diet is that the human body’s needs haven’t changed in the last 2 ½ million years and our diets should be like our ancestors’: meats and fish, regional produce, legumes, seeds, and nuts. Very few complex carbohydrates, no processed food, no refined sugar.

The benefits of the Paleo diet—even on a short-term basis—have been proven: decreased blood pressure, greater glucose tolerance, cholesterol balance, regulated blood sugar levels, weight loss, and lowering risk for heart disease.(1)


There is plenty of research available to determine if the Paleo diet is appropriate for you.

We’ve put together a 2-week menu for you to try; whether you pick and choose or do the whole thing is up to you.

We think you’ll notice a difference in how you feel. Simply click on the recipes’ names for instructions!

Week 1 – Tuesday

Breakfast: Apple, Leek, and Bacon Sausages


Make the sausages in advance and keep them in the freezer for whenever you want a quick and tasty homemade protein. Leeks contain lutein, an antioxidant especially supportive of eye health; molasses provides a little mineral sweetness to keep you regular; apple for fiber and vitamin C.


Lunch: Cauliflower Fried Rice


Cauliflower is in the family of cruciferous vegetables, high in vitamin C, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.


Dinner: Cashew Chicken


Cashews contain antibacterials that fight tooth decay, acne, and pneumonia.


Week 1 – Wednesday

Breakfast: 2-ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes


Sweet potatoes are heavy-hitters for vitamin A and ginger is a true superfood.


Lunch: Twisted Tuna Salad


Parsley is more than just a garnish—it’s a nutritional powerhouse. Garlic adds tang, depth, and cancer-fighting and heart-healthy compounds.


Dinner: Paleo Lasagne


Using zucchini instead of pasta replaces complex carbohydrates with a much more nutritious structure for the other yummy stuff.


Week 1 – Thursday

Breakfast: Salmon Eggs Benedict


Wild salmon adds necessary omega-3 fats and avocado adds texture, color, and the benefits of a superfood.


Lunch: Sausage and Butternut Squash Frittata


Easy to make with an appetizing presentation, a great dish to share. The variety of color in the vegetables makes this so, each contributing its unique set of vitamins and phytonutrients.


Dinner: Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein


This dish satisfies the yen for Asian food but is much better for you sans monosodium glutamate and starchy rice.


Week 1 – Friday

Breakfast: Paleo Bacon Pancakes

Bananas are loaded with potassium and negate the need for additional sweeteners. Coconut flour delivers the healthy fats of coconut without grain drain. Nutritional information – Calories: 500, Carbohydrates: 12 grams, Fat: 24 grams, Protein: 28 grams.


Lunch: Lamb and Eggplant Soup

Most soups and stews taste better the second day—this is no exception. It takes a while to prepare, so that’s all the more reason to make it the day before you plan to serve. Eggplant delivers fiber, vitamins B and K, a slew of minerals, and antioxidants.(2)


Dinner: Moroccan-style Slow-cooked Lamb

Any leftover lamb from lunch can be used for dinner! Coriander adds savory warmth while delivering antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits.


Week 1 – Saturday

Breakfast: Twice-baked Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes aren’t really potatoes and are way more nutritious—combined with bacon, it dances in your mouth.


Lunch: Pesto Egg Salad Wraps

Collard greens are a little tough to eat raw but their density makes them perfect for wrapping around other foods. You’ll get a rich dose of calcium, vitamins B6 and C, and all your vitamin A for the day.


Dinner: Tomato and Avocado Burgers

Using tomato halves instead of a bun, these are much prettier (and messier!) to eat than your average barbecue fare.


Week 1 – Sunday

Breakfast: Paleo Fry-up

Perfect for a Sunday morning: an easy-bake comfort food dish that won’t leave you feeling like you swallowed a bag of plaster. Lots of garlic to help your liver and head if you imbibe a little too much the night before.(3)


Lunch: Grilled Vegetable and Chicken Salad

Versatile to include whatever vegetables you have on hand with a delicious tomato vinaigrette, this is a colorful and tasty way to get an extensive variety of phytonutrients.


Dinner: Grilled Lobster

Cilantro’s unique flavor is a staple of Mexican cooking. This is a succulent dish with a kick.


Week 2 – Monday

Breakfast: Cinnamon Vanilla Muffins

Make a bunch over the weekend to enjoy during the week for a filling light breakfast or snack that won’t cause a mid-morning crash.


Lunch: Asian Ground Beef Broccoli Slaw

Who says slaw has to be made out of cabbage? Lots of people ditch the stalks from broccoli—use it to make slaw instead.


Dinner: The Bomb Chili

You may use your choice of meat or a combination. Loaded with protein and a (now-not-so-secret ingredient) shot of raw cocoa powder to add a smoky flavor and a blast of antioxidants.


Week 2 – Tuesday

Breakfast: Green Smoothie

You’ve been waiting for this—a Paleo smoothie. Loaded with fiber and not too sweet, this thick drink will keep you full all morning.


Lunch: Broccoli Salad with Cashew Cream

Use the florets you cut from the stalks for the slaw! Cashews add texture, crunch, and tryptophan to keep you in a good mood.


Dinner: Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Salsa doesn’t have to be made with tomatoes—an avocado sauce is a cooling topper to this mildly spiced protein with cumin and chili. Try using black seed cumin to get a multitude of health benefits.


Week 2 – Wednesday

Breakfast: Coconut Pecan Breakfast Bars

These bars can be frozen and eaten whenever you want a quick breakfast or afternoon snack.


Lunch: Mini Frittatas

Cute with a delightful texture, you can have as many as you like for an easy-to-eat lunch. Use home-cooked meat bites rather than the processed deli meat in the recipe to avoid additives, preservatives,  and high doses of sodium.


Dinner: Beef and Bok Choy Stir Fry

Another delicious one-pan meal, you won’t miss the rice.


Week 2 – Thursday

Breakfast: Choco Paleo Bars

Chocolate for breakfast—ain’t it great? Nuts are a fantastic source of minerals, protein, and fiber. Dates add more fiber, along with anti-inflammatory sweetness.


Lunch: Spicy Tuna and Tomato Paleo Burgers

No one can resist a good burger, no matter what it’s made of.


Dinner: Paleo Pulled Pork

Slow cooked in a crock pot, this is a great week-day dinner that’ll be hot and ready when you get home from work.


Week 2 – Friday

Breakfast: Immune-boosting Blueberry Smoothie

Blueberries: an antioxidant slam dunk.


Lunch: Sushi Rolls

Rice (not fish) is the primary ingredient in sushi rolls made at a restaurant. These are easy to eat and much more satisfying without the rice filler.


Dinner: Chicken, Tomato, and Green Bean Curry

A curry-lover’s delight.


Week 2 – Saturday

Breakfast: Banana Bread Parfait

It’s the texture and mouth feel of grains that are so appealing, not necessarily the grain itself. This grain-free bread is made with almond meal, making it dense and filling while providing the goodness of almonds. Try making your own almond milk for better flavor and greater nutrition than store-bought, which is mostly water, sugar, and various vegetable gums.


Lunch: Zucchini “Pasta” Pesto

There’s nothing like homemade pesto loaded with basil and garlic…mmmm.


Dinner: Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Don’t be intimidated about rolling your own. This recipe is time-consuming but a delightful activity on a stormy Saturday.


Week 2 – Sunday

Breakfast: Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches

Move WAY over, McMuffin.


Lunch: Paleo Buffalo Chicken Soup

A hearty and warming soup. Frank’s RedHot is one of the few sauces you can buy at most grocery stores that doesn’t contain corn syrup, artificial somethings, and preservatives.


Dinner: Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

Lemon sauce accents the fish; using the zest accents the healthful impact.
